James studied as a microbiologist and immunologist then quickly swapped the hospital lab coat (no global pandemic back then) for a pair of white wellie boots and set of overalls. He has spent the last 23 years working from the shop floor through most of the different functions and positions in manufacturing to now lead the General Mills Global Internal Food Safety Audit team.
In the process he has become a SME for Pest management, Sanitation, Food Safety Training, and Inspection. James has worked in over one hundred countries worldwide and on most product platforms. He continues to passionately champion Food Safety and especially doing the basics right every day.
